Willie Miller, the designer and urbanist who founded Willie Miller Urban Design (WMUD), passed away on January 12 after a short illness.
A statement on the firm’s website reads: “Willie was a much-loved husband and father and had a huge circle of friends and professional colleagues. He was a multi-talented urban designer whose work had a major impact on hundreds of cities, towns and neighbourhoods throughout the UK and over the past 25 years. He also worked in Ireland, the Channel Islands and the USA.”
